What To Do with Homely Chest of Drawers?

Good Questions

Q: I recently bought this chest of drawers, planning to do my very first makeover. I've been lurking around sites like this for ages, thinking "I really wanna have my own before/after experience."  (continued below...)

The chest of drawers is quite practical, but the dark wood veneer (or whatever it may be) doesn't seem quite right in my living room. I was thinking about painting the "corpus" white and the drawers in different shades of milk paint (I'm living in Germany, but you can get milk paint here). Then I wasn't sure about this anymore (mostly because of the dubious material) and decided to just change the knobs. I chose different knobs to achieve an unconventional look but I'm not entirely happy with that either. The picture shows the piece with the new knobs and I added a pic of the original knobs (after the jump). I'd appreciate any ideas!
